BIG DEAL HAPPY RETURNS
Here’s your chance to splash out on new furniture and salve your conscience at the same time. Homebrands buys cancelled orders and furniture returned by customers to several of Britain’s major department stores (whose names cannot be mentioned). It then sells this stuff at up to half the high street price. The opening of a new outlet in Burwell, near Cambridge, sees Homebrands working with the charity Morph. The aim is to teach young people to repair and restore furniture, while reducing the amount of timber sent to landfill. Homebrands now has its own waste carrier’s licence, leading to controlled and environmentally friendly disposal. The company has stores all over Britain and is now offering Telegraph readers a 10 per cent discount off its entire range, if you buy more than one item. To claim, visit Homebrands Distribution Centre, The Hangar, Heath Road, Burwell, Cambridge (01638 744510) before February 28 and mention this column (or see www.homebrands. co.uk to find a store near you).
